Adam Bowes - Junior Technician


Tell us about yourself and your cycling or adventuring achievements.
I've always enjoyed cycling as long as I can remember. I haven't had the opportunity yet to travel the world but it's something I'd like to do in the future.

What are your favourite things to do on the bike?
Just ride and have fun with my friends, nothing too competitive.

Where is the most exciting place you've ridden your bike?
Wales probably, not exactly exotic but there are some nice trails over there.

What is your goal in life, cycling or otherwise?
Move to Canada and just ride all day every day. Thats the dream.

Who are your sporting heroes?
Matt Macduff, Brendan Fairclough; they're just the most stylish riders I've seen.

Tell us about what you do at Spokes of Bagshot
I make teas and coffees, build bikes, sell bikes, even some washing up, a bit of everything really.

What does being on the Spokes team mean to you?
Last year with my school I had the chance to do a work experience placement. Since I had always enjoyed riding I chose Spokes to do my work experience. I met everyone there and really enjoyed it. At the end of the week I was lucky enough to be offered a Saturday job. Ive worked here ever since. It was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made as I've met some new friends and earned more money to spend on my bike.

If you had one piece of advice for someone new to cycling what would it be?
Just have fun whatever you choose to do.
